About Me

My name is Vanessa, I am a 29 year old from the beautiful south of Germany :)

I am married to the most wonderful Nepali guy and I work in market research.

I suck at crafts, but I do enjoy Postcard swaps! And of course e-swaps! Love those ♥

Favorite Music

I have a very eclectic music taste. I listen to a lot of different genres. Also I don't like to stick to just one or two languages, as I think music is beyond country limits.

Favorite Books

Reading is one of my greatest passions and I am not very picky when it comes to books. I own over 600 books! My husband thinks I am crazy but I just want to provide a nice comfortable home for my bookish friends ♥ I read the classics just as fantasy, adventure books or romantics. I even read 50 shades of Grey although it was one of the worst books I ever read.

Favorite Television

I am a big series junkie. I loove:

BBC Sherlock

Big Bang Theory, Bones, Friends, Family Guy., Avatar the last Airbender...

I'd be happy about

I am very easy to please. As long as I see that you cared about what to send to me I will always give you a heart. I do not see why people are so cheap with giving out hearts.

Anyways, I am always happy about receiving:

  • tea (I don't like herbal tea very much)
  • hot cocoa
  • stationery
  • anything about Frida Kahlo
  • chocolate
  • marzipan
  • mints
  • scarfs (very addicted to scarfs!)
  • souvenir magnets of your country/city
  • stickers
  • lipbalm/chapsticks
  • bookmarks
  • pens
  • adress labels
  • rubberstamps

For everyone from Latin America! Please! I LOVE mentitas (Ambrosoli) and anything that contains dulce de leche


I am very much addicted to postcards, they will always make me happy. If possible, I prefer them written and stamped :)

I collect:

  • countrymapcards and flags

  • capital cities

  • Greetings from.. (postallove)

  • Frida Kahlo

  • Postcards related to BBC Sherlock, Friends, Pokémon

  • postcrossing meeting cards

  • US Statemaps (I am only missing Rhode Island! If you send my this one, I will love you forever!)

If you are sending blank cards in an envelope, please, if possible no touristy view cards unless the swap requires it, I collect these written and stamped only.

I also like to receive:

  • Diddl Maus
  • Polacards
  • Keep Calm
  • Quotes
  • Tom of Finland
  • hinduistic deities (esp. Ganesha)
  • crazy/innapropriate cards
  • any postcard you would like to receive yourself

No thank you

This is gonna be just a short list, so please keep in mind:

  • I do not need get converted. I am pretty happy with my actual religion. Please also no religious items

  • Nothing tasting like fish/seafood/liquorice/coffee

Random things I like

  • Latin America
  • drinking out of a freshly cut coconut
  • traveling
  • blogging
  • Frida Kahlo and Salvador Dalí
  • Mango
  • palmtrees
  • the sun
  • Mafalda
  • dulce de leche
  • libraries
  • Pokémon (loved the old Gameboy games, my favourite pokémon is Lapras)
  • Harry Potter
  • Sherlock Holmes (all about him)
  • linguistics ...

Last but not least

I think it is really cool that there are so many languages on this planet, so if you write me through a postcard, please use your native language (no translation needed). I like the challenge to understand what you wrote.

I speak German, Spanish and English well to very well

I am able to communicate okish in Nepali and French

And I understand written Dutch, Italian, Portuguese and Hindi.

If you want to do a private swap especially postcards write me! I am open to anything.

Hi Vanessa, So happy you're back on ESG and thanks for all you do to make it a fun group! I'm excited about helping out and getting to know you better! Here's my quick friendly profile comment for you :) I love the graphics on your profile - so cute! I also loved seeing your postcard blog. What a great idea!

Hi thank you for organising the ESG: Quick friendly profile comment swap. I can't believe how many swaps you have completed, I am only just getting started on swap-bot. It's nice to find a fellow bookworm and someone else who likes Harry Potter and Sherlock Holmes. What do you prefer for Sherlock Holmes, the books or the Tv?

Inez on Sep 13, 2017:

Hi Vanessa!

It was really nice reading your profile! We have some things in common! I also like mango, fresh coconut ( I have coconut palmtrees in my garden 😊), traveling, palmtrees! You seem a very nice and friendly girl to me!

I wish you all the best!

Warm greetings from Bonaire!
